Following the tremendous success of the ECB’s All Stars cricket programme in 2017, we are delighted to be able to announce that the initiative will return to Somerset again this year!
For 2018 nearly fifty of the county’s clubs will be delivering the programme, which includes eight weeks of coaching, and over 500 of Somerset’s five to eight-year-olds have already signed up!
All Stars is a nationwide initiative that is designed to inspire young people to take up the game and provide a great first experience of the sport. Whilst teaching young people new skills, All Stars also puts the emphasis on having fun and making friends.
All girls and boys are welcome and each registered child will receive a pack of cricket goodies including a cricket bat, ball, backpack, water bottle, personalised shirt and cap so that they can continue their love of cricket when they go home.
Children who were involved in 2017 will receive different kit in year two including a set of stumps!
To register your child, go to https://www.ecb.co.uk/play/all-stars and search for your nearest centre by entering your postcode.
Sign up and see Somerset in action
Every child that registers to All Stars in Somerset will receive complimentary tickets for one junior and one adult to our Vitality Blast match against Hampshire at the Cooper Associates County Ground on Wednesday August 1st.
Somerset players will once again be supporting the All Stars programme and a number of the squad will be attending sessions during the summer.
